Detroit rockers Wilson are one of the most fun bands we’ve discovered in the last couple of years. We were very impressed with them on their UK live debut tour supporting Halestorm back in March when we saw them at The Roundhouse in London (read a review of that evening’s events), so we’re delighted to announce Wilson’s first UK headline tour will happen early next year.
Eight shows across the UK will see Wilson in the likes of Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Cambridge and of course London (at The Barfly), and their guitarist Jason Spencer cannot wait:
“Hey Europe/UK! While sitting here taking a shit, it hit me exactly HOW exciting this tour is going to be for both you and us! It will be the perfect blend of fuckery, rock n’ roll, and all round good times!” Frontman Chad Nicefield echoes the sentiment, saying; “We are beside ourselves with excitement to be bringing our stench back across the pond! This will be our first time ever headlining in your neck of the woods and each show is going to feel like the best Friday night on Earth!!”
